Windermere Coeur d’Alene Realty Wins Best Real Estate Office for the Second Year in a Row!

Professional Services– Best Real Estate Office

Posted: Wednesday, March 28, 2012 4:00 am

Windermere/Coeur d’Alene Realty

With a second consecutive “Best Real Estate Office” designation, Windermere Coeur d’Alene Realty has much to be proud of in 2012. The locally owned and operated company is home to three offices and 125 staff, two of whom were also voted “Best Residential Realtor” and “Best Commercial Realtor” this year.

With 90 years of experience since Coeur d’Alene Realty opened its doors, the company, and especially owner Don “Pepper” Smock, comprise a regular source of local information and perspective on what seems to be a changing real estate market. On the other hand, the formula for success remains the same.

“We know it is critical to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to technology and other advancements that help people buy and sell real estate, but more importantly we strive to stay committed to those principles that have made us a cornerstone in the real estate industry in our community for so many years,” says Smock.

Windermere/Coeur d’Alene Realty is one big, small family. Smock’s wife Midge, son Duffy, and daughter-in-law Jennifer also work for the company, but Smock sees the whole team as “family,” with their own set of family values.

“Those values include delivering exceptional service, encouraging and supporting each other and putting clients’ interest above our own,” explained Smock.

“Best Commercial Realtor” for 2012 Dan Johnson, a Windermere/CDA Realty Realtor, told North Idaho Business Journal staff that a big part of his success is the company he works for, especially their emphasis on giving.

“(We) believe very strongly about giving back to the communities in which we live. (Windermere/CDA Realty) has made a sincere commitment to improving the lives of children, families, and neighbors in crisis through their volunteerism, monetary gifts, and the Windermere Foundation,” said Pat Krug, who runs the foundation’s well-known Christmas giving program to aid low-income families in North Idaho.

“The basic philosophy of giving back to the community is role-modeled by the owners and the many representatives and employees who truly believe that they are blessed by their actions. Each representative/employee of Windermere gives a percentage of their fees from every professional sale to the Windermere Foundation,” Krug added.

This full service residential and commercial brokerage has offices at 1000 Northwest Blvd. in Coeur d’Alene (208) 664-9221; 1616 E. Seltice Way in Post Falls (208) 777-9900; and the newest location in Hayden, 867 Prairie Ave. (208) 762-4888. Through the Website CdaRealty.com viewers may easily see every property, listed by every company in the palm on their hands with smart phones.

Nature and history lovers the world over flock to the area for its untamed rugged beauty, blue-ribbon rivers & unique cultural legacy. Part of the immense Nez Perce National Historic Park is located directly across the highway, site of the legendary “Heart of the Monster”. This geological formation is one of 38 sites spread across thousands of acres of untamed Idaho wilderness & attracts hundreds of visitors every year.
This scenic region of north-central Idaho is the largest public wilderness area in the lower 48 states, a true Sportsman’s Paradise, drawing year-round crowds. World famous Clearwater River, a stone’s throw from the Resort, is on every angler’s bucket list. The Clearwater River produces the largest, hardest- fighting B-run Steelhead anywhere! Area rivers include the Lochsa, Salmon & Selway. White water river trips are highly coveted & are often pre-booked years in advance. At the height of Spring runoff, area rivers can challenge the most experienced navigators, sometimes boasting class 5 rapids.

Wildlife is abundant in these parts. Hunters and nature enthusiasts thrill to sightings of Deer, Elk, Bear, Mountain Lion, Pheasant, Grouse & Mountain Goats. The occasional moose always stops traffic! Fall & Spring fishing seasons, hunting season, white-water river adventures, hiking & sightseeing draw year-round crowds and repeat business for the Resort.

The Resort is located 1.5 miles from Kamiah, Idaho, a progressive small town with a Western/Victorian Motif. Kamiah offers excellent schools, sports programs, and medical services.

If the area draws them in, then the Resort and its many amenities keeps them coming back. This well-established business, first built in 1979, has continued to grow and thrive under visionary ownership. It currently boasts a full menu of guest accommodations and services:

The Windermere Report: Coeur d’Alene MLS, North Idaho Real Estate Market Review for 2011

Dear Friends,

We thought you would appreciate this information about last year’s Real Estate Market in North Idaho.  Here is the annual Windermere Market Review.

We would LOVE to hear from you!

We fear that our clients and friends may think we “only” want to hear from you when you are ready to buy or sell real estate.  Not True!   We truly enjoy all the friendships we have made through the years, and would just love a chance to “catch up”.

Please call or email us, or even stop in the office.  Tell us about your children, grandchildren, pets.  Help catch us up on “you”.

Also, if you haven’t yet heard, we have a NEW PUPPY.  Well…he’s not so “new” these days.  We adopted “Trakker” in September.  He’s quite a perky, energetic, friendly little fellow.  He would enjoy meeting you.  And to tell the truth, we like to “show him off”.  He’s our “baby”.

Anyway, if you have any questions about information you read in this report, we would also be happy to help you sort it all out as well.

As always, we

  • treasure your friendship,
  •            value your  business, and
  •                        will work hard for your referrals. 

 

Looking forward to hearing from YOU!

~ Randy, Christy & “Trakker”
